The Cox Ferry Water
System is currently in violation
of the maximum
contaminant level (MCL) for
total trihalomethanes as set
forth by the State [Part XII of
the Louisiana State Sanitary
Code(LAC 51:XII)] and the
Federal Primary Drinking
Water Regulations (40 CFR
Part 141).
The United States
Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) and the Louisiana
Department of Health
and Hospitals (LDHH) set
drinking water standards
and requires the disinfection
of drinking water. Where
disinfection is used in the
treatment of drinking water,
disinfectants combine with
naturally occurring organic
and inorganic matter present
in water to form chemicals
called disinfection
byproducts (DBPs). EPA
ad LDHH set standards
for controlling the levels of
disinfectants and DNPs in
drinking water, including
trihalomethanes (THMs)
and haloacetic acid (HAAs).
Some people who drink
water containing THMs in
excess of the MCL over
many years may experience
problems with their liver,
kidneys, or central nervous
system and may have an
increased risk of getting
cancer.
In December 1998, EPA
set enforceable drinking water
standards for TTHMs at
80 parts per billion (ppb) and
for HAA5 at 60 parts per billion
(ppb) to reduce the risk
of cancer or other adverse
health effects. Compliance
with the TTHMs and HAA5
standard for public water
systems serving less than
the 10,000 individuals initially
became effective and
enforceable on January
1, 2004. Compliance with
the TTHMs standard is
determined by calculating
a locational running annual
average (LRAA) of
quarterly TTHMs sample
results. Compliance calculations
performed for the
third quarter of 2017 show
that the system’s current
TTHMs LRAAs are 90 ppb at
DBP01-120 EASY LIVING
LANE; thus, the system is
currently in violation of the
TTHMs standard
Please share this information
with all the other
people who drink this water,
especially those who may
not have received this notice
directly (for example, people
in apartments, nursing
homes, schools, and businesses).
You can do this by
posting this notice in a public
place or distributing copies
by hand or mail.
This is not an emergency.
If it had been, you
would have been notified
immediately. EPA and
LDHH do not consider this
violation to have any serious
adverse health efforts on
human health as a result
of short-term exposure;
however, continued longterm
exposure to TTHMs
level above the standard
(e.g.,20 years of exposure)
has the potential to have
serious adverse effects on
human health.
Cox Ferry Association
(Water System) is pursuing
a possible merger with a
nearby water system to
alleviate this problem in the
near future.
